I sent Alan a patch to update the USB support in 2.2.11 (for inclusion
in 2.2.12).  Apparently Linus gave it the thumbs down because the USB
stuff is still under very active development and he (Linus) didn't
want to be receiving patches against two different source bases, or
something like that.  Oh well. :-(

The USB stuff in vanilla 2.2.12 is so old that I would be *extremely*
surprised if it worked.
